Pip Hare Ocean Racing Vendee Globe Campaign

£11,075 of £54,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 17 days

In November 2020 I will line up with 30 International skippers to race a 60ft boat around the world, non-stop, ALONE.

The Vendee Globe race is the world's toughest yacht race, it happens once every four years and it takes skill, guts and determination just to get to the start line.

Ten Years ago I competed in my first single handed ocean race and from that moment I have been relentlessly training, racing and working my way up the sailing ladder with the ultimate goal of racing in the Vendee Globe.  In 2020 it will happen.

Last year I secured my boat and resourced the initial take-over funding to cover measurement costs for the boat and set-up of my campaign. Going forward I have a commitment of £4000 per month to keep my boat afloat and the campaign wheels in motion. This amount covers charter fees, mooring and insurance.  I will be working hard over the first half of 2019 to find commercial sponsors.  During this period, I am hoping to meet my running costs through crowdfunding, allowing me to work full time, training and finding the right sponsorship partners. 

My fundraising goal represents running costs through to August 2019, by which time I hope to have secured a great sponsor. By donating to this campaign, you will be gaining a very real stake in one of the most elite sporting events on the planet and helping to put a British female athlete on the start line. Through my previous crowdfunding platform and via private donations we have already raised in excess of a phenomenal £9000, which is one sixth of my fundraising target. The money raised so far has covered the boat running costs for the first two months of my campaign.

All donations are welcome and will be used to specifically cover my boats running costs, allowing me to work full time on delivering the competitive and exciting race I know I am capable of.
